Groovy Ethnopop arrangement. Oriental flavoured ambience, based on the song 'Ey Dokhtare Moomeshki' by my old friend Nosrat (aka Noston). Male vocals: Nosrat Charkhi Topics: ethno, folk, pop, oriental, vocals, lyrics, groove
Ballad, based on the Hungarian poem 'Szomorúfüz', written by József Attila. The title means 'Weeping Willow'.
